Filming & Photography

One of BAC Helicopter’s specialist capabilities is Helicopter Filming & Photography Services. Having gained and nurtured an excellent reputation in this highly specialized field, BAC provides the platform and insight to support a number of well-known aerial photographers. Relationships between pilots and photographers are built over time and a clear understanding of the end result and how to achieve it gives BAC a distinct advantage in this niche environment. Aircraft type and pilots are carefully selected for each specific operation in order to maximize the benefit and service to the client. Our experienced pilots are well practiced to maximize the unique capabilities of a helicopter to deliver highly effective results in both still photography and helicopter filming.

With a rapidly growing worldwide trend towards stamina sports, helicopter filming of an increasing variety of endurance races and sporting events across the country, including long distance running, paddling, mountain biking and motor-biking has put BAC Helicopters at the forefront of this growing market. Well established as a professional operator, BAC has developed relationships with a number of high-profile film crews as well as with the key event co-ordination companies. With up to seven helicopters operating in varying roles for each event, from filming to race security to rescue, a proficient and skilful ground crew work hand-in-glove with the pilots to be in the right place at the right time to ensure a slick turnaround with the re-fuelling and re-loading of each helicopter. BAC’s team has the logistics down to a fine art.

A well-maintained fleet and experienced pilots are fundamental to our reputation for the safe, reliable and on-time supply of helicopter filming services, providing cost-effective and responsive solutions to all of our client’s needs.
